Some nurseries have extra resources to meet the needs of children with complex special educational needs and disabilities.
local offer logo To support children whose needs can't be met solely from a nursery’s own resources, we have provided additional resources to create an enhanced provision for seven nurseries in the borough.

The enhanced provision is for children with significant social and communication needs, either diagnosed with autism or awaiting an autism assessment, having complex developmental needs, or a combination of both.

Accessing the service

Children aged between 2 and 5 years and known to at least three specialist services as well as the Early Years SEN team are eligible for the early years enhanced provision.

As of July 2017 we have eight enhanced early years nurseries that offer up to four places per nursery for children with significant needs.

You can read about each nursery and our full educational provision for children and young people with SEND by downloading the booklet below.
